The Bob Jones Experience

As an avid hiker, I often spend so much time on our local mountain trails that I forget about the other lovely walking and biking paths that SLO has to offer, including the Bob Jones Trail of Avila Beach. 

Also known as the "City to the Sea Trail," this 3-mile-long paved path begins just off the 101 freeway on Ontario Road and ends in downtown Avila Beach. Along the way, walkers, runners, bikers, and rollerbladers, alike can enjoy a leisurely stroll past scenic wooded areas, a wandering creek, and the Avila Beach Golf Course - all while a hint of the ocean wafts gently in the breeze.

With the Silver Horse wineries located at the parking lot to the trail, a dog and stroller-friendly walkway, and small park placed midway on the trail, this jaunt is one the whole family can enjoy.
